2020 Ural Weekender SE First Look: Special Edition Sidecar

Just in time for autumn, Ural lets loose with the 2020 Ural Weekender SE. Based on the 2WD Gear Up model, the Weekender SE features striking hand-applied two-tone paint, along with its own feature set.

The 2020 Ural Weekender SE comes with a 2/3 length rider set, vinyl tonneau and apron set for the sidecar, a windshield, spare wheel, stainless steel sidebar bumper, and fog lights.

Ural also brightens things up by replacing many black parts, such as the wheels, with a Silver Trim motif. It’s something of a throwback design, with the paint recalling 1990s Urals, as well as the Silver Trim bringing to mind the discontinued Patrol model. The color names might be a bit confusing, so we can tell you that the Poppy is orange, Sunshine is yellow, and Meadow is green.

To fulfill its promise as a weekend warrior, the Weekender SE can be ordered with Ural’s 1.25-inch accessory receiver. That allows you to add a cargo rack, bicycle carrier, or snowboard rack, among other options.
